he is the only creature in the whole country who is against paying visits to town.

‘ I wonder why London cannot keep its own fools at home!’

He loves ‘old-fashioned trumpery’. ‘I love everthing that’s old: old friends, old times, old manners, old boks, old wine.’

His relationship with his step son, Tony:

‘It was but yesterday he fastened my wig to the back of my chair, and when I went to make a bow, I popt my bald head in Mrs. Frizzle’s face.’

His relationship with his daughter, Kate: Hardcastle cares for his daughter Kate, but insists that she dress plainly in his presence. It is he who arranges for Marlow to come to the country to marry his daughter.


TONYMrs. Hardcastle: …Thepoor boy wasalwaystoosickto do anygood. A schoolwould be his death. When he comesto be a littlestronger, whoknowswhat a yearortwo’s Latin may do forhim? Hardcastle: Latin forhim! A catandfiddle. No, no; thealehouseandthestablearetheonlyschoolshe’ll ever goto.Mrs. Hardcastle: …Anybodythatlooks in his facemayseehe’sconsumptive.Hardcastle: Ay, ifgrowingtoofat be one of thesymptoms.Mrs. Hardcastle: He coughssometimes.Hardcastle: Yes, when his liquorgoesthewrongway.Mrs. Hardcastle: I’mactuallyafraid of his lungs.Hardcastle: Andtrulysoam I; for he sometimeswhoopslike a speakingtrumpet


Tony: The Three Pigeons expects me down every moment. There’s some fun going forward.

Mrs Hardcastle: Pray, my dear, disappoint them for one night at least.

Tony: As for disappointing them, I should not so much mind; but I can’t abide to disappoint myself.


‘’Let schoolmasters puzzle their brain

With grammar, and nonsense, and learning,

Good liquor, I stoutly maintain… ‘’


Mrs Hardcastle: You shan’t go.

Tony: I will, I tell you.

Mrs Hardcastle: I say you shan’t.

Tony: We’ll see which is strongest, you or I. (Exit, hauling her out.)


His sense of humour : burning the footmen’s shoes, frightening the maids, worrying the kittens.


Tony is fat, uneducated, consumptive, self-oriented, fun-loving, not obedient, wisecracker, trickster
